OK, I believe I am going to order one out of Rondo. I am not sure which one though. I am looking at these three. The Brice v2 FIve string, or one of the p-bass, or j-bass clones. I do a little bit of slapping, and play mostly rock and jazz. I would like the collective wisdom of TB to guide a fretless wannabe. I am worried about being able to slap on these basses. I have read that sometimes the e string hits the pickup of the J-bass. Also, does anybody slap on one of the p-bass clones? How do you like the tone? As always, THANKS!!!
